Cameryn Olivia: Month 11

9 Jan

Although I am behind on these posts I want to get caught up before the birthday girl turns one next week!  Next week, I can’t even believe it! 

My little baby is now approaching toddler-dom!  It seems like just yesterday I was pregnant and awaiting my special baby girl to arrive.  She was so tiny and now she is a big girl!  She no longer seems like a little baby to me. 


Here are a few new developments from month 11:

  • Cameryn loves riding in shopping carts!  I am a germ freak so I always wipe down everything and then put a blanket down so she (knock on wood) doesn’t catch anything from the carts!  Smile  But she loves waving to people and loves the view from up high!
  • Cameryn is trying her hardest to walk on her own but isn’t there yet.  She loves all her push toys and walks with them as assistance all over the house!  She holds her head up just a bit higher and stares at you until you give her praise!  You can tell she is proud!  She is crawling like a speed racer though!
  • Speaking of walking, she uses anything and everything to keep her up so she can walk, like the wall.  It isn’t uncommon to find her up against the couch or a wall moving!
  • She is wearing size 12 months perfectly.  Some of the pants are still a bit big though, but the shirts fit a lot better.  She is also wearing size 9 month and 12 month pajamas.  Diapers are size 3 during the day and size 4 overnight.
  • Cameryn is trying to sleep through the night.  Her bedtime is around 6:30pm and she sleeps until about 6-7am.  She usually wakes up for a feeding at midnight and 4am.  Sometimes she is up around 2am as well.  She is still in our bed, but knowing we are going to transition her soon, I’m soaking up every last minute of snuggles before she is out of our bed. 
  • Cameryn is teething like crazy!  We have teeth!  Two of them!  She got her bottom right one first, followed by her top right one.  They are still slowly coming in.  I have a feeling more are on the way (that’s because there are more now!)
  • Cameryn’s favorite foods are still broccoli and blueberries.  I’ve tried giving her chicken but she just threw it all off her tray and onto the floor.  She also is just slowly warming up to cheese.  I’ve given her a few different flavors and she sort of picks at it.  Besides lots of fruit and vegetables she is still nursing on demand during the day and night.
  • Cameryn’s best friend is Quincy!  She loves him so much and tries to play with him by throwing him his ball.
  • Cameryn had her first Thanksgiving and also her Grandpa Andy came out for a visit!  She also travelled to Jerome, AZ for a day of fun and helped us decorate the house for Christmas for the first time!
  • Cameryn also mastered waving, clapping and blowing raspberries on command!  Smile  She also loves to give her mommy and daddy kisses throughout the day!
  • Words:  mama, dada, haaii (something that sounds like hi), also she says something that sounds a lot like I love you!

    I LOVE that pic of C with the lights above her head. Perfect Christmas pic 😉

    Funny that she and bean got their teeth in the exact same order! Bean’s left eye tooth is coming in and his two front teeth are poking through. What fun!

      Me too! We actually used it as one of the pictures on our Christmas card this year!

      It is funny that their teeth came in the same way and that they both didn’t get teeth until 10 months! It is still so surreal to me to see Cam with little white teeth poking through!

    I always love when I see a post from you pop up into my reader. I’m glad to hear everything is going well and she is so cute. I cannot believe how old she is getting, ah I remember when you were just announcing your pregnancy.

      Thanks Hollie! Time goes by way too quickly! I’m so sad my little girl isn’t a baby anymore, but so excited to watch her grow into a beautiful young girl! 🙂

    I cannot believe that Cameryn will be 1 next week!! I started following you when you were pregnant with her! I know I always say this, but she is too cute for words!! Can’t wait to see how you are going to celebrate her birthday! 🙂

    How exciting! She is such a cute baby. I would love if you did a body after baby post. You were so inspiring through your pregnancy and after it. Also, I can’t wait for you to start posting your meals again I got some great recipes and tips from your blog! I hope her party is wonderful!

      Thanks Elizabeth! I will definetely do a body after baby post, i”ve actually been meaning too. I also plan to start blogging about items other than just baby updates as well. I’m glad I could inspire you and I hope to be back to my normal blogging soon, as it has been way to long and I really miss it! I had plans to start on Jan 1st, but that hasn’t really happened, so maybe this week it will! 🙂 Thanks for following along, I really appreciate it!
